Clicking on the Add or Edit button on the Ship To Code Glossary Window or Ship To Code Search Window will open the Ship To Window.  This window is used to enter shipping addresses to be used on purchase orders.  These codes can be assigned to Components in a Project and to the Project itself.  When entering Components into a Project, the system will use the default ship to as indicated on the Project Window unless you specify a different Ship To code for that particular Component.


To add an entry, click the Add Button and input the required information.  To edit an entry, click the Edit Button and alter the information as necessary.  To change the designated Ship To code, you must delete the entire entry and add a new entry.  See the Delete function on the Ship To Code Glossary Window.
